Strange watch pricing

Ok something I’ve never thought about is the cost or value of issued military watches. I’ve got two of them, a CWC (Cabot Watch Company) GS (General Service) watch that was issued to me in 1996.
And one that was issued to a friend of mine who sadly passed away a few years ago and his family gave me his watch. This is the Pulsar GS G10
Now I’ve not given any thought to the cost of these because the sentimental values alone is enough, but I was doing a bit of reading for a piece I’ve been writing and this quite shocked me. The Pulsar was selling for around £45 a few years ago, it is after all nothing that special, it’s just a watch. Then some young whipper snapper started rocking one and the price shot up. I say that with the greatest respect as he is now the Captain -General of my old mob.
Anyway the Prince Harry Pulsar as it’s now known sells for £155 and up. Very odd indeed for what was at the time a very common timepiece.
